In my opinion I feel the solo in "Something" is one of the greatest solos ever written. It fits the song so perfectly that you just can't imagine anything being able to top it.
There are some nice chord progressions using 7th chords and some nice muting techniques. And the solo has some really nice 1st finger bends and excellent vibrato. It is an excellent study in playing a highly musical solo that perfectly fits the underlying chords.
You will find two videos below, the first demonstrates all the chord progressions and fills within the song and the second video covers the solo note-for-note. Enjoy!! Carl..
